“Everything done under the heavens is accomplished through prayer. Nothing will stand against the forces of evil without it.”

It’s a critical hour. The church is in need of an awakening, and our nation is desperate for spiritual revival. God has provided us with a powerful tool—one that enables us to draw closer to Him, gain wisdom and understanding, and even change the world. Yet we often lump prayer into the intangible, view it as a last resort, or shove it to the bottom of our to-do lists. Why?

A Prayer Warrior’s Guide to Spiritual Battle is a field manual for exploring the depth and power of a praying life. Drawing on a variety of perspectives, this book explores prayer from every angle—from its basic elements to the obstacles that hold people back. With inspirational stories, tools, and resources, this guide enables new recruits and seasoned prayer warriors alike to gain a greater understanding of the number one weapon in spiritual warfare: prayer.

New to the Second Edition

Top Highlights

“Courage under fire requires a necessary balance of prayer and Scripture study within the church body—harmony between order and discipline. It is the fortitude of knowledge and unity to bring down barriers and move mountains in our culture.” (Page 1)

“Someone once said that we make a mistake when we think of praying for God’s work to be done. ‘We don’t pray for the work,’ he said, ‘prayer is the work.’ You have a lot of tasks ahead of you, but they all pale in importance compared to the priority of prayer. Remember John 15—we’re the branches on the vine. Branches don’t work and strive to produce fruit; that happens naturally as a result of their connection to the vine. Don’t let your ‘to-do’ lists—as important as they are—sever your connection with the Vine. Work in a context of prayer. Plan in a context of prayer. Make your contacts in a context of prayer.” (Page 2)

“The front line is the threshold where the battle is won or lost. It is the turning point for victory or defeat, where the will of the mind prevails over flesh through faith and the empowering of the Holy Spirit.” (Page 1)

“So you see, since we are temples of the Holy Spirit (which we will discuss more later on), we have an intercessor who takes our prayers to God the Father and even interprets them on our behalf. This is the communication line—and understanding this vital point is critical if you are to advance in your training. Carefully consider what I have shared thus far before reading further in this guide to spiritual warfare.” (Page 22)

“Jesus Christ wants a relationship with us that is built on time spent in His presence and reading His Word” (Page xii)
